    Works great

      Got this a few weeks back and I definitely already feel stronger. I work unpredictable hours and live near a gym that has short hours, so training during the week can be tough. This allows me do some quick training as I walk by or an organized workout when I cant make it to the gym or crag. Like other have said, beginners beware a lot of folks mess up their fingers on these. Stick to the big holds until you can make the suggested progression and you should be good!

      Amazing training board

        The Metolius simulator 3D training board was easy to install, if you are going to put it above a door or walkway you will have to purchase an additional board. Backcountry does offer one with the board for only a little more, which would totally be worth it. When installing, make sure you have at least 3 to 4 studs that you can drill into to make sure it is securely on the wall. Grips feel great, perfect for training at home! Exactly what I needed!

        Amazing training board

        Awesome Board!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Lots of variety on this board! It offers lots of options to perform a variety of strength training exercises. Setup is a piece of cake and the end result looks great! Awesome tool for any climber!

        Awesome Board!

        Your fingers are toast

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I did have some difficulty installing the Simulator in my studio apartment and ended up drilling it into a 2" piece of pine above a metal rail, but once I overcame that obstacle my training was on path for a massive improvement! This hang board, along with regular climbing in a gym, has helped me jump a grade leading outdoors. I highly recommend it especially as an add-on to climbing days to get an extra training session for your fingers. Make sure to warm up!

        Awesome but beginners beware!!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The hang board has improved my climbing ten hold. Installing was simple.

        I had never used a hang board prior to buying this one. Hang board training is something you have to build up. I injured some fingers by not warming up properly and over reaching my abilities. Just read up on hand board techniques before starting and you should be fine.

        Feel the burn

          All in all, a home-run product. I picked one up a few weeks ago and find myself using it almost every day. Will definitely improve your grip and confidence, while building up some muscle.

          Super easy to install, but as previous reviewers have mentioned, have your plywood cutout ready if you plan to install over a door frame.

          Welcome to Burn Town

            Holy guacamole, talk about an insane grip workout from hell, this thing freakin' rocks!!! For the past four months or so, I've been hanging around and doing work on a knurly pull-up bar; yeah, major Snoozeville to say the least. Anyhow, in just the past few days alone of using the 3D, I am already seeing, and FEELING quite a bit of improvement over the bar. I can't wait to see where I am at in a month.

            Installation went rather quick- just have your cut plywood handy if you plan on mounting this above a door frame.

            Once it's up, get ready to feel the burrrrrrrrrrrrn!

            Fantastic Training Tool

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            This board has saved my grip strength during the winter while I was unable to climb outside. Great for warming up for a climb or to burn out after a session in the gym. I try to hang on it every time I go through my door.

            could not ask for more

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            this board is great!! it has plenty of holds to get your weakness stronger and improve upper body strength. have used it for about a week and I already feel improvement in my climbing endurance

            This board rocks

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I've been very pleased with this board. It's hard to tell all of the features from the pictures.... but it's loaded. I was quite pleased to find the two sloper spots either side of center.

            This > That

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            Those famous lines "you can get with this, or you can get with that" is a perfect example of that. My gym has this exact training board and I absolutely love it. It gives you a lot of places to put your fingers and many that differ in depth and how many fingers you can fit in the spaces and on the outsides of the middle jug you have a nice sloper as well. If you really want to bump up your game, be on the fast track to send that project you just started then, or you just can never get enough climbing but can't make it to the gym or out to your favorite site then this training board was meant for you. Metolius Project Board is a smaller version which I actually bought for my room which is good if you don't want something this big but keep in mind the amount of pockets you have drops significantly. I wish I had just sucked it up and gone with the Simulator 3D. I get ten times more out of this one at my gym then I do the smaller one at my house and in all honesty this one really isn't much bigger than the Metolius Project Board. So get with this, not with that. You will get stronger faster and progress much quicker.

            Excellent

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I use this all the time at my local gym. The top row is very good to warm up before starting your routine. The lower row is very narrow, perfect to begin getting used to smaller holds. I got one to use at home, perfect complement to the gym.

            Winter Month Trainer

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            When its too cold to be climbing outdoors, and you don't feel like heading to the gym an equally good workout can come right out of this training board. Increases strength in hands, grip, and overall ability. Great alternative to constant indoor climbing or to just have around the house.

            Birthday Money, Well Spent!

              In a matter of Days, I went from doing One, Nasty pull-up, to Doing Three or Four Good Ones and a few Nasty pull ups every time I work on this fingerboard. The holds are challenging and doing a 'simple' 10 minute routine gives you a pump for a few hours.

              What are the major dimensions of this hangboard?

              Hey all,



              What is the difference between this board, the Metolius Project Board, and the Metolius Contact Board?

              Best Answer

              The difference between the three are options. The Project is the simplest with only the two jugs, limited slopers, and only the two rows of crimpers this one is pretty basic but might be all you need ( I have this one at home. The Simulator is a step up with the added jug and added row of of crimpers it gives your more options and hand positions to up your game and tone those muscles (we have this one set up here in the office at BC). And the Contact board is yet another step up with even more options and another difficulty level of crimpers. Also, the varying positions on the side really help develop those lats (this one is set up at the gym).

              Could someone please explain the difference between this training board and the Metolius Contact Board? Also, which training board would you recommend?

              Best Answer

              It's just s different assortment of holds. This one has those big jugs on the top that the Contact doesn't, but the Contact has big pinches down low that this one doesn't have. Overall, the Contact is a more difficult board in terms of holds, so it depends on your current skill/strength. Hope that helps.

              Does anyone know the sizes of the edges/pockets, i.e. 3/4' etc

              Thanks but no, I am asking how deep the edges are. Example - there is a diagram here for a slightly different board:

              Can't find one for this exact board though.

              I am wanting to get a finger board but I don't have room to put it in my house. Can it be left outside, or will the elements damage it? And/Or should I fabricate some form of quick attachment so i can put it up and take it down as needed?

              If it's not exposed to direct sunlight most of the time I think you would be fine. I have a friend with an outdoor "climbing wall" and the holds are probably the same material, and its fine. The sun might fade the color and speed up deterioration of the plastic. As far as some sort of quick attachment, that would be cool. But it might cut down on how often you use it... And I can only imagine having to take it down in the winter?

              Best Answer

              The hangboard comes with 8 screws to attach the hangboard to a 3/4" plywood backing (3/4" plywood back board needs to be attached to the framing members or studs of your house and is not included).

              Of the 8 Screws, 3 of them are about 2" long, 3 of them are about 2 1/2" long, and 2 are about 3" long.

              Since the screw placements are seated at different depths in the board, and there is a curvature to the board itself which adds to the depth, you'll have to go through a bit of trial and error to figure out which sized screws are meant for which of the 8 holes.

              Does anyone know the dimensions of this...

              Does anyone know the dimensions of this board? Does it fit above a standard door frame with enough height clearance for pull ups?

              Here's the dimensions: 28" x 8.75" (711 mm x 222 mm)
              This will fit above a standard sized door. You will need to look at how much space you have above the frame to the roof of your living area (i.e.: double volume or normal volume roof) in order to determine how high you could do your pull ups

              I extended the 3/4" backboard about 8-10 inches below the top of my doorframe. So now the hangboard sits just above head level and I can do full extension pull ups well above the board with no issues whatsoever. . Tall people may have an issue with this suggestion. I'm about 5'11" and I'm maybe 2-3 inches from hitting my head on the hangboard when walking through the doorway.

              I used 2 extra sections I cut off the 3/4" backboard I had to act as a buffer so the board doesn't sit right on the doorframe. The backboard ended up being 21"x48" before I set it into the studs so I could screw some extra holds in later.

              OH! AND I can still close the door just fine!
